now

Weekly Photo Challenge : Welcome to Now, and the last moments of 2015…

Welcome to “Now”, this moment in time.

But as I write it, as I think it, it has gone and the next now is here…

We are urged to live in the now. But how can I record it? How can I show you now?

Well I have thousands of “now moments” recorded on my computer’s hard drive. Photography is the medium of “now”. A moment in time captured forever, making it possible, even years from now, to recall those fleeting moments, bringing back memories.

Jack has caught me, in a very inelegant pose, as I take a photo of these pretty native flowers in the Mount Annan Botanic Gardens in Sydney.

What a vivid splash of colour this Scaevola aemula (Fairy Fan-flower or Common Fan-flower) makes. Behind it is the paper daisy, another Australian native, and one of my favourites.

Now looking at these photos brings back the detail of that day. Spending time with our son and his wife, wandering around enjoying a pleasant day spent together and sharing a meal at the gardens restaurant. All caught and recorded in the moment in time, however fleeting it may be.

As I write this it is the last day of 2015, 9-10pm, the night is still and warm and the chirping sound of cicadas fill the air, but in the distance I can, faintly, hear  the children’s display of fireworks being let off in one of the townships. The now moments are slipping by and soon (3 hours and 45 minutes at this precise moment, but of course it is getting less as I type) it will be the BIG moment when 2015 becomes 2016, and the crescendo of fireworks reverberates around the world.

Time to think of the year that has passed so quickly and the unknown of the year ahead.

Best wishes to all my blogging buddies it has been an absolute pleasure to be part of this world-wide community. Thank you for dropping by to my part of the world and especially thank you for leaving comments and sharing your life with me. I look forward to the coming year and all it holds for us.
